Đội hình PFA

MU chơi gần nguyên hàng thủ, cõ lẽ chuỗi trận giữ trắng lưới trước đây gây ấn tượng quá mạnh. Chứ giai đoạn này thì chắc khó đây ….

 Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho - Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand claims Jose Mourinho can replace Alex Ferguson

England centre-half Ferdinand reckons the Portuguese coach has the credentials to follow in 67-year-old Ferguson’s footsteps.

Mourinho – who guided United’s rivals Chelsea to two English Premier League titles – is the manager of Italian champions Inter Milan, who face Manchester United in the Champions League round of 16. The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg in Milan last week and play the second leg at Old Trafford on March 11.

“There are very few people who could take over,” Ferdinand told GQ magazine. “If you’re talking about someone with the ego and personality to do it, then Jose Mourinho is the name that jumps out at you.”

However, United legend Bobby Charlton does not believe Mourinho would be able to build on Ferguson’s legacy. “I would hate for anyone to take this the wrong way but I don’t see him here,” he said.

“He’s got a talent but maybe if he ever came here the philosophy of youth football might never be the same again.”

And fellow club hero Bryan Robson added: “Attacking football is a vital part of the club’s heritage. For me, Jose Mourinho is too cautious in his approach to the game to be manager.”

Ferdinand gave an insight into the kind of personality required for the job as he detailed Ferguson’s notorious “hairdryer” treatment – giving players a full-on verbal roasting.

“It’s not pretty, it’s unbelievable,” he says in the Mail on Sunday. “If you talk back to him, he just keeps going louder and louder until you shut up.

“The worst we’ve seen is after we behaved badly on a night out. Then, the fireworks explode and he goes bananas.

“Everyone’s heads are on the floor, trying not to catch his eye. And he’s right to do it and we all know that if we do it again, we’ll be out the door.”

Manchester United set to offer Cristiano Ronaldo record breaking deal – £200,000/week and keep him at the club until 2014.

The club are eager to bring to an end any remaining suspicions that the 23-year-old is heading to Real Madrid this summer, and hope £10.4 million a year will be enough to do so.

According to the News of the World, the new deal involves a weekly salary of £160,000 plus £40,000 for image rights and commercial activities.

Ronaldo’s current contract – which pays him £120,000-a-week – has three years still to run, but according to Fifa rules he would be eligible to buy himself out at the end of the 2009/10 campaign.

With speculation over his future rife since the transfer saga of last summer, recent reports in Spain have suggested that Real and Ronaldo have a verbal agreement for a summer move, but this is vehemently denied by Sir Alex Ferguson.

“There is no question of Ronaldo leaving,” he said when asked of the rumours.
